Summary of Martin E P Seligman s Learned Optimism Book Description:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The father was upset that his newborn daughter did not respond to noise. He was sure she was deaf. The mother explained to him that it was too soon to say anything like that, and that the baby’s eyes hadn’t yet developed enough to focus on anything. #2 The difference between optimists and pessimists is how they view bad events. Pessimists believe that bad events will last a long time, are their own fault, and believe that they can never overcome them. Optimists believe that defeat is not their fault, and that circumstances, bad luck, or other people are to blame. #3 The core of pessimism is helplessness, which is the state of affairs in which nothing you choose affects what happens to you. Personal control is the ability to change things by your voluntary actions, whereas helplessness is the state of affairs in which nothing you choose affects what happens to you. #4 If we are constantly pessimistic, we will be more likely to get sick, accomplish less than our potential, and graduate less than we should. We will also believe that our misfortunes are our own fault, which will make us feel even worse.

Positive Psychology Book Description:

The fully updated Third Edition of Positive Psychology: The Scientific and Practical Explorations of Human Strengths covers the science and application of positive psychology and presents new frameworks for understanding positive emotions and strengths through a culturally competent lens. Authors Shane J. Lopez, Jennifer Teramoto Pedrotti, and C.R. Snyder bring positive psychology to life by addressing important issues such as how positive psychology can improve schooling and the workplace, as well as how it can promote flourishing in day-to-day life. Throughout the book, well-crafted exercises allow readers to apply major principles to their own lives. The book also explores various positive conditions within multiple cultural contexts, such as happiness and well-being, and processes related to mindfulness, wisdom, courage, and spirituality. “The emphasis is not exclusively clinical; it includes applications and implications across a number of environments and draws from a number of perspectives, including neurobiology. This range makes it an excellent choice for anchoring major concepts so students can explore the application of positive psychology to their specific areas of interest.” —Dr. Pamela Rutledge, Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology

The New Science of Learning Book Description:

While preserving the elements that have made the previous two editions so successful—such as chapters on sleep, exercise, memory and mindset—this third edition introduces students to wholly new aspects of brain function and how they impact learning; and furthermore, addresses the challenges of learning online. By introducing new concepts, strategies, and applications related to learning and memory that are based on current findings in cognitive, social, and motivational psychology, this text offers a richer and more complete picture of how brain science illuminates how we learn. Students assigned this book will be equipped to design effective learning plans, employ new strategies, recognize learning traps, discover ways to work effectively in groups, improve recall, and realize better academic performance through test-taking and paper-writing strategies. This new edition also addresses the concerns of all students—particularly those unfamiliar with the college setting and its expectations and assumptions—and offers strategies for success. In keeping with the preceding editions, this book introduces students to concepts, techniques, strategies, tips, and ideas to help them be academically stronger students, advance faster in their studies, and demonstrate what they have learned more effectively—in short, how anyone can learn to be a better learner by learning how to learn in harmony with their brain. The book remains compact and student-friendly, offers examples of practice, and includes discussion questions at the end of each chapter. An instructor's manual is available for faculty.
